1.  THE 2 MOST COMMONLY RESEARCHED FOOT PROBLEMS ON THE INTERNET ARE HEEL PAIN AND INGROWN TOENAILS.

2.  60 TO 70% OF DIABETIC PATIENTS WILL DEVELOP SOME FORM OF DIABETIC NERVE DAMAGE WHICH IN SEVERE  CASES CAN LEAD TO LOWER LIMB AMPUTATIONS.  THERE WERE OVER 2000 PREVENTABLE LOWER LIMB AMPUTATIONS IN CANADA ALONE DUE TO DIABETES.  OUR FOOT CLINIC HAS A COMPUTERIZED NERVE CONDUCTION TEST FOR DIABETICS WHICH CAN DETECT CHANGES IN THE VERY EARLY STAGES OF THE DISEASE.

3.  75% OF PEOPLE WILL EXPERIENCE FOOT PAIN AT SOME TIME IN THEIR LIFE.

4.  60% OF ALL FOOT AND ANKLE INJURIES IN PEOPLE AGED 17 OR OLDER ARE FROM ANKLE STRAINS AND SPRAINS.

5. 5% OF THE POPULATION SUFFERS FROM INGROWN TOENAIL EACH YEAR.

6. 5% OF THE POPULATION HAS FUNGAL FOOT INFECTIONS EACH YEAR.

7.  STANDING IN ONE SPOT FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME IS MORE TIRING THAN WALKING BECAUSE THE DEMANDS ARE BEING MADE ON THE SAME FEW MUSCLES FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME.
